Oct 22, 2021

According to the Federal Government, a link has been established between Yoruba nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho and a Boko Haram sponsor, Surajo Muhammad, who was sentenced to life in prison in the United Arab Emirates on charges of financing terrorism.

The government also claimed that Igboho received N127 million from several financiers, including a federal lawmaker, between 2013 and 2020. The government, on the other hand, refused to reveal the identity of the legislator.

This was stated by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), while reading out the findings of a Presidential committee formed to investigate Igbo and leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Members of the Federal Ministry of Justice, the Federal Ministry of Information, the Nigeria Police Force, the Department of State Services, the National Intelligence Agency, and the Defence Intelligence Agency made up the 24-member committee.

“The report revealed that Sunday Igboho is a Director and signatory to Adesun International Concept Limited, which was registered on April 23, 2010,” Malami said.

Oladele Oyetunji and Aderopo Adeyemo are also directors of Adesun International Concept Limited. Sunday Igboho has 43 bank accounts in nine different banks.

“A federal lawmaker in the National Assembly was discovered to be the main financier of the fugitive and separatists.” Between October 22, 2013, and September 28, 2020, Igboho received a total of N127, 145,000 from his financiers via Adesun International Concept Ltd accounts.

“From March 15, 2013, to March 11, 2021, a total of N273,198,200 in transaction outflows were recorded from Sunday Igboho’s account.”

According to the investigation, Adesun International Concept Ltd (of Igboho) transferred N12, 750,000 to AbbalBako& Sons.”

According to the AGF, Abbal Bako and Sons, as well as its promoter Abdullahi Usman, are suspects in the ongoing Joint Terrorist Financing Investigation.

“Abdullahi Usman is linked to Surajo Abubakar Muhammad (who was sentenced to life in prison in the UAE on charges of financing terrorism) through a financial transaction” (Boko Haram). “This report demonstrates the link between separatist agitation, terrorism financing, and disruptions in the country’s peace,” Malami said.

The report discovered financial transactions between Adesun International Concept Ltd (an Igboho company) and various construction companies and businesses, among others.

Malami stated that despite receiving the reports, the Federal Government remains steadfast in its desire for a peaceful Nigeria.

“Within the context of the legal provisions, the Federal Government will do the necessary to ensure that the matter is given the deserved attention, and those found guilty will face the wrath of the law,” he said.
